Transitions are difficult for anyone to make, though they can be most challenging for older adults who must move into a new environment. VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice’s specialized rehabilitation therapists partner with assisted living facilities to ensure that new residents avoid falls and safely adjust to their new home.
Research shows that the incidence of falls is highest during the first week an older adult moves into a new environment. VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice helps to minimize the risk. We are the top choice home healthcare agency for major hospitals, rehabilitation facilities and medical offices to help individuals ensure their well-being and safety navigating new surroundings.
